Synopsis

Jessica, a beautiful and spirited young woman from the provinces, comes to Paris to experience life in its infinite variety. She talks her way into a job waiting tables at a chic bistro on fabled Avenue Montaigne, the city's nexus for art, music, theater and fashion. Jessica's customers include a popular TV actress who is courting a major Hollywood director for her first serious film role; a wealthy art collector who is about to liquidate a lifetime's worth of treasures at auction, and his estranged son, Frederic; and an illustrious classical pianist who is at odds with his manager/wife as to where his career is headed. Precisely because Jessica doesn't know how celebrated these people are, she is not intimidated by them. Her guileless engagement in their lives has a transforming effect on them--and ultimately on her.
